The Archive was formed in 2003 after a chance remark by a local historian that "if it is not recorded now when the older inhabitants die it will be lost forever". This spurred the Friends of Crayford Library to start collecting together views of Crayford and talking to some of the older Crayfordians. Now after 16 years we have quite a collection of old photos all recorded on our data-base.

      We are a small group of like minded people, although not all born in Crayford, have a keen interest in the local area. We work to the old Urban District Council boundary which stretches to incorporate Barnehurst and Slade Green.
